Overview

The department pursues the study of Italian culture in an interdisciplinary context, which challenges traditional parameters of the discipline to advance knowledge in our areas of expertise. We currently have particular strengths in the literature, visual culture and cultural history of modern and contemporary Italy, and in the literary and cultural history of the medieval period.

Careers

Many graduates from this programme develop careers in higher education or work on high-level research projects in the field of Italian; others take their in-depth understanding of literary and visual cultures into a host of other professions, such as translation, journalism, publishing and the cultural industry.

The advanced critical and professional skills developed at postgraduate level, alongside skills in research and communicating research, also prepare our graduates for a diverse range of careers, from the civil service and law to commerce and the media.
